    You can add another HDD but only by using an HDD Caddy instead of the DVD/CD drive. It will automatically be the secondary HDD along with your existing primary HDD boot drive. Jack E/NJ

    I didn't get you for HDD Caddy, what does it mean?
  • JackEJackE Posts: 16,745ACE Trailblazer
    Google 'hdd caddy'. A caddy is an enclosure for a 2.5" HDD or SSD that looks like a DVD/CD drive. It plugs into the same slot that a DVD/CD drive plugs into.  So it replaces the DVD/CD drive. The HDD/SSD caddy's are very inexpensive  If you don't want to give up your DVD/CD drive, then you can only run an external HDD or SSD via a USB port. Jack E/NJ
